My Baby Is Teething - What Can I Do to Relieve the Pain?

August 22, 2018

So, your baby is finally experiencing the dreaded process of teething. Teething causes pain and misery for both the baby and their parents, who can lose sleep, energy, and simply feel awful seeing their baby in that kind of pain. But you don’t have to helplessly watch as your baby teethes there are many things you can do to help relieve the pain. Some parents choose to use medications to help their baby’s teething pain, but if you’d prefer remedies that don’t have potential side effects, you should take a look at the following 3 ways to relieve your baby’s teething pain effectively without side effects.

Apply Cold:

When your baby experiences teething pain, it’s usually because their gums are sore and inflamed. You can reduce the pain they feel by applying something cold to the gums, which will numb them enough to temporarily reduce the pain. You should never apply ice or anything freezing to your baby’s gums. Instead, you can freeze a damp washcloth and allow the baby to chew on it. Or you can buy teething toys that are designed to be frozen, as they will be safe enough to freeze without getting too cold or potentially cracking. Once your baby realizes that chewing on the frozen toys or rag provides pain relief, they will be all too happy to take them from you.

Apply Pressure:

Another way to temporarily reduce pain in sore and inflamed gums is to apply pressure. This can come in many forms. You can simply let your baby gnaw on your finger--but if you’re worried about them chomping down or simply don’t have the time to sit there with your baby attached to your hand, then you can look for pressure-based teething toys. These toys often have ribbed designs that will provide all-around relief when your baby chews on them.

Relieve the Symptoms That Cause Pain:

If you’re looking for a remedy that’s longer-lasting than cold or pressure, you will need to relieve the symptoms that are causing the teething pain. By and large, teething pain is caused by inf-lammed gums. When the gums get inf-lammed, they hurt--naturally! You could use pain medications, but these not only have side effects, they only work for so long.

The best way to relieve symptoms that cause teething pain is through amber teething necklaces. As the name suggests, they are made with amber, which contains the anti-inflammatory succinic acid. The succinic acid gets absorbed through the skin gradually as the baby wears the necklace, and begins to reduce inflammation in the body--this includes the gums. When your baby’s gums are not inflamed, they will hurt a lot less, thereby relieving their teething pain.

Final Thoughts:

Remember, you don’t have to pick just one teething remedy. You can always combine different remedies for a more effective teething treatment plan.
